Automatic Valve warrants its products to be free from defect in material or workmanship over a period of 18 months from
the date of shipment from its factory. Automatic Valve will, at its option, either repair or replace the non-conforming product
at no charge upon return of the product with transportation prepaid.
Automatic Valve will replace standard commercial grade NEMA 4 solenoid coils which fail due to burnout when operated
within their rated capacity or voltage.
Automatic Valve is not responsible for damage to its products through improper installation, maintenance, use, repairs or
operating beyond rated capacity of voltage, intentional or otherwise. Automatic Valve is not liable for claims for labor, loss
of profit or good will, repairs, delay damages, direct or indirect penalties, or expenses incidental to replacement. The buyer,
by acceptance of delivery, assumes all liability for the product’s use or misuse in the as-shipped condition.
Automatic Valve, recognizing its goal of continuous improvement, reserves the right to discontinue or change specifications,
products or prices without incurring obligation.
Automatic Valve manufactures general purpose, industrial pneumatic and vacuum service valves, which
are not inherently harmful. However, the control systems in which they operate must have safeguards to prevent injury or
damage in case of system component failure.
OSHA 1910.217, dated November 1, 1975, ANSI B11.1, Revision 1982, and EN 13736: 1999 specifically recommend special
purpose dual (double) safety clutch and brake valves for power presses. Automatic Valve does not manufacture special
purpose dual safety valves for presses. Do not use Automatic Valve Corp’s valves for power presses.
Two position valves, whether they are 2 way, 3 way, or 4 way, will always have a flow path from the valve’s inlet port or
ports to one of the outlets, regardless of which of the two positions is used. If air trapped in or exhausted from the ports
presents a hazard in operation or in servicing the system, a separate method must be provided to exhaust this air or the
valve should not be used.
Three position 3 way and 4 way valves, whether solenoid operated, air piloted or manually operated, can move to the center
position if the operators are not actuated. If air trapped in or exhausted from the ports presents a hazard in operation or in
servicing the system, a separate method must be provided to exhaust this air or the valve should not be used.
Some solenoid and air piloted valves incorporate manual overrides. Manual overrides, when activated, shift the valve as if
the solenoid or air pilot were actuated. If accidental or intentional operation of the manual override could cause a dangerous
problem, valves without a manual override should be used.
Use valves only within specification limits listed in our catalog.
Consult the Engineering and Maintenance section of the Automatic Valve catalog #0001-001 for installa-
tion instructions. Do not install valves without first turning off air and electricity. Valves must be installed by qualified and
knowledgeable personnel who understand how specific valves are to be piped and electrically connected. Do not install
valves unless the valves’ flow path, as described by ANSI and ISO symbols in our catalog, conform to the application’s design
Disconnect air and electricity and bleed all pressurized lines before removing two and three position valves.
Consult the Engineering and Maintenance section of the Automatic Valve catalog #0001-001 for maintenance instructions.
Servicing should only be undertaken by qualified and knowledgeable personnel who understand the function and operation
of specific valves. Care must be followed to prevent damage to valves caused by stepping on them, dropping them or hitting
them with any object. Damaged valves should be returned to Automatic Valve for inspection and rebuilding.
